    Man finds snake head in beans

    Man says he finds snake head in beans

    Fri Jun 15, 10:23 PM ET

    Earl Hartman was a little rattled by something he says he found in a can of green beans: a snake head. The Philadelphia man said he found the inch-long head on his plate Wednesday night, right between a chicken breast and buttered noodles. He said it came out of the green bean can.

    "When I sat down, I noticed something didn't look right," Hartman told WCAU-TV. "It didn't look like a green bean."

    Hartman said he called the Pathmark store where he bought the beans, and got a call back from Seneca Foods in upstate New York, where the vegetables were canned.

    Rich Savner, a spokesman for Carteret, N.J.-based Pathmark Stores Inc., confirmed that a customer reported finding a "foreign substance" in a can of green beans, but said officials had not determined what it was.

    The store conducted spot checks of other cans, but nothing out of the ordinary turned up, Savner said. Similar cans were removed from the shelves as a precaution.

    A woman who answered the telephone at Marion, N.Y.-based Seneca Foods Corp. on Friday said the company had no comment.

    No worries. Tastes like chicken anyhow. Cook it up.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    While on the surface it appears to be ACTUAL humor coming from Jenna...I think we should launch a full investigation into her plagerism...no WAY she came up with that on her own...LMAO
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    Haha! A company I did some work for at one point had a complaint from a consumer who found a grasshopper in a can of spinach. She claimed that she'd never be able to eat canned vegetables again and sued them for enough money to have nothing but fresh veggies delivered straight to her door from now on.

    I found a beetle in a can of beans once. Scooped it and a few of the beans around it out, enjoyed my meal. Now a snakehead, yeah, I'd toss that can, but a grasshopper...nah.

    If I find a human hair in my food though, then its gag time.

    Best I can tell by reading this is it must have been one of those little green grass snakes. If that's so I feel for the others who don't have a head just chopped up body parts. Could be a little harder to spot those.

    If you season it correctly you won't be able to tell the difference.

    When I was working with that company I mentioned, I had to learn everything about how some vegetables are canned - and I literally spent time in fields in South Carolina, then following the produce through every step of the canning operation. It's not a pretty sight. The employees, though, were given monetary bonuses for every bug that they found before the vegetables went into the processors.

    Consider that an extra source of protein. If it was seasoned good, you probably wouldn't have known the difference.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    How much per bug? Was the size of the bonus tied to the size of the bug?

    I don't remember how much they received per bug, but the vegetables were on a slow moving conveyor on their way into a rinsing/washing processor and the employees sorted through them by hand.

    Nope, the size of the bug didn't matter - if they could see it, it had to go.

    Anyone else reminded of the quote from History of the World Part 1?

    Roman Officer: Do you know the penalty for a slave that strikes a Roman citizen?
    [people in the crowd raise hands enthusiastically]
    Roman Officer: Ok, you. You had your hand up first.
    Man in crowd: Death by torture!
    Roman Officer: No. You.
    Man in crowd: Crucifiction!
    Roman Officer: No. You.
    Man in crowd: They shove a living snake up your ass!
    Roman Officer: Ah, no... but that's very creative.
